For some MLB players, hitting four home runs in a week is a big accomplishment.

Cincinnati Reds left fielder Scooter Gennett hit four home runs in one game, going 5-for-5 with 10 RBIs against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

The utility player is the first player in Reds history with a four-homer game and became the 17th player in MLB history to accomplish the feat.

Some of the other players who completed the feat include Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees, Willie Mays of the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton, who completed the feat in 2012, according to a graphic from MLB.com.

According to a tweet from ESPN, Gennett entered Tuesday’s game hitting 1-for-his-last-20.
